Wooden rocking chairs, which are typically used in children’s homes, have long been popular among parents, but they are becoming increasingly popular among adults.
While rocking chairs are a great way to bring kids into the home, they can be uncomfortable, and some adults prefer a chair that has a natural curve to it.
A new study suggests that rocking chairs might be the perfect choice for adults who want to feel comfortable with their chairs.
Researchers at the University of Minnesota’s Kellogg School of Management have found that adults who sit in rocking chairs have lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, lower blood sugar and lower body fat than their counterparts who sit with natural chairs.
While the study was conducted in a group of 2,000 adults, the researchers also looked at data from a broader sample of 6,000 adult volunteers.
The researchers looked at how long adults spent sitting in a rocking chair.
They found that, compared to people who used natural chairs, those who used rocking chairs spent an average of 9 minutes in the chair per day.
More importantly, the people who sat in rocking chair had lower cholesterol levels, a lower blood glucose level and a lower body weight, compared with those who sat with natural chair.
This finding was particularly notable, the scientists said, because the researchers found that when the researchers adjusted the participants’ waist circumference and BMI to account for their age and sex, the rocking chair participants actually had higher waist circumference, a higher BMI and lower blood sugars than those who had natural chairs and had less activity in their lives.
In addition, people who sit rocking chairs had lower levels of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which can make it hard to lose weight and lower stress levels.
They also had lower body-fat levels, the team found.
Although the results of the study suggest rocking chairs may be a good choice for people with a wide variety of health concerns, the authors say that rocking chair users should still be careful about their health.
“Our results suggest that rocking-chair users should be careful with their exercise,” the researchers wrote.
“We would recommend that rocking activity be a daily activity, preferably one that is not a full-body workout.”
Alyssa Hovland, a registered dietitian and certified health coach, said that rocking in the kitchen is an effective way to help a person feel comfortable.
“My favorite way to sit down is with my hands on my hips, like you would in the bathroom,” Hovlands said.
“I have been rocking my chair all day and it has not negatively affected my health, so that makes me feel more comfortable.”
The team also noted that rocking a chair can be challenging, especially for older people, who have to bend over and lift their feet to move around the chair.
However, Hovs said that if you have arthritis, you may want to consider using a chair instead.
